Notes: An inpatient discharge occurs when a person who was admitted to a hospital leaves that hospital. A person who has been hospitalized more than once in a given calendar year will be counted multiple times as a discharge and included more than once in the hospital inpatient discharge data set; thus, the numbers in this report are for discharges, not persons. All county-level data is based on patient zip code of residence and not the location of hospitalization. The data does not include Department of Defense, Indian Health Services, Veteran's Administration, or state licensed pyschiatric hospitals. All discharges are for the residents of Arizona. Discharges of out-of-state residents are not included in this report. The emergency room (ER) and the inpatient hospitalization data are mutually exclusive. The ER data include only those who were not admitted as inpatients. Patient's race/ethnicity is available for hospital inpatients but not emergency room visits. The following ICD-9-CM codes for first-listed (or primary) diagnosis were used to identify the discharges for alcohol abuse: 265.2 (Thiamine and niacin deficiency), 291 (Alcoholic psychoses), 303 (Alcohol dependence syndrome), 305.0 (non-dependent abuse of alcohol), 357.5 (Alcoholic polyneuropathy), 425.5 (Alcoholic cardiomyopathy), 535.3 (Gastritis; acute/alcoholic), 571.0-571.3, 571.6 (Chronic liver disease and cirrhosis), 760.71 (Fetal alcohol syndrome), 790.3 (Excessive blood level of alcohol), 980.0-980.9 (Toxic effect of alcohol).

The report distinguishes between the first-listed diagnosis and all-listed diagnoses. The number of first-listed diagnoses is the same as the number of discharges. All-listed diagnoses include first-listed diagnoses and secondary diagnoses and are provided for users who want to know the total number of times certain conditions have been reported for hospitalized patients. The discharge record may include more than one diagnosis specific to alcohol abuse (i.e. alcohol dependence syndrome and alcoholic gastritis). Therefore, when counting all-listed diagnoses, the sum of all occurrences of diagnoses specific to alcohol abuse (the column sum in the tables D, E and F) is greater than the total number of discharges with alcohol abuse diagnosis.
